SkillsFuture Earn and Learn Programme

early-career-employee

What Is it?

The SkillsFuture Earn and Learn Programme is a work-learn programme that gives fresh graduates1 from polytechnics and the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) a head-start in careers related to their discipline of study. It provides them with more opportunities, after graduation, to build on the skills and knowledge they acquired in school, and better supports their transition into the workforce.

Participating employers can recruit local fresh talent, within three years of graduation or the Operationally Ready Date for National Servicemen and prepare them to take up suitable job roles. Participants in the programme can look forward to a structured career progression pathway within the organisation.

This programme is designed in collaboration with industry to ensure relevance to employers and the growth of the sector. Since 2015, the SkillsFuture Earn and Learn Programme has been introduced in 23 sectors, including Aerospace, Biomedical Sciences, Food Services, Games Development, Healthcare, Hotel, Infocomm Technology and Retail. More sectors including Early Childhood Care and Education, Human Resource Management, Media, MedTech and Sports and Wellness will be introduced progressively in 2017.

In addition to existing SkillsFuture Earn and Learn Programmes leading to part-time Diplomas, Advanced Diplomas and Specialist Diplomas of the polytechnics, and Singapore Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) certificates and Diplomas, we will also be introducing a new SkillsFuture Earn and Learn Programme for ITE graduates leading to the ITE Technical Diploma. More details will be announced at a later date.
